Cover B

Held captive by the gang of mercenaries and their giant pet frog, Spike manages to avoid death by offering to take them to the location of the Seed. Arriving in the ruins of Sunnydale, the mercenaries follow Spike through the ruined tunnels to the main chamber – where the thugs’ leader quickly realises that he has been tricked, and gives the order to execute his prisoner. Luckily for Spike he is saved by the arrival of his bug crew, who have mounted a daring plan to rescue their master, and a mysterious succubus; a battle quickly ensues – and then more unexpected guests show up...
